Who's The Work Jerk? We Want Your Story!

The workplace can be great place to work were everyone gets along with their co-workers and superiors. But it can also be a hotbed for disagreements, confrontations, and other outrageous occurrences. It can be a confrontation with a co-worker over who's food is who's, a manager who can't seem to manage their team and passes the blame, or even a company that is not meeting your expectations. It can be difficult to handle this properly, especially if the tension has been building for a while. Tempers are high and heads might not always be clear. Want to know if you're in the right?
